  3. Is social media polarising society? Page 9 GS3 role of media in internal security Yes .S.media is fast and uncontollable ,unlike traditional media. Everyone is info creator traditional here..so hate messages, fake news easy to create and disseminate. S.media is promoting herd behaviour according to some psychologists Majoritarianism against democratisation is leading to tendencies like mob lynchings hate messages, fake new No .S.media only a tool.Blaming it is akin to blaming pamphlets for French revolution In Newyork, Social media post was helpful in finding a lost ring of a woman. Metoo also got a vent due to democratising tendency of S.media Conclusion- S.media indeed is a communication revoultion.But threat of polarisation is real due to its misues. Awareness, Artificial intelligent and technology(to filter fake news) are the most potent weapon to fight it .Qn- Do you think blaming social media for fake news is akin to blaming pamphlet for French revolution?How can we address the issue of fake news in social media?
